"remained in their houses ...
rarely venturing to the edge,

and how after the war they
had been attacked by both
Palestinian refugees and

Congressmen Join in Appeal
.• •
to Kissinger on Syrian Jews

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
After a visit from Rabbi
Ovadia Yosef, Separdic chief
rabbi in Israel, 14 members
of Congress cabled an ap-
peal to Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger and
Undersecretary of State
Joseph J. Sisco to intercede
with the Syrian government
to allow the remaining 4,000
Jews in that country to emi-
grate to countries that will
receive them.
Rabbi Yosef, attired in
ceremonial robes, met the
congressmen in the office of
Rep. Sidney Yates (D.-Ill.),
dean of the 12 Jewish mem-
bers of the House, and de-
scribed the plight of Syria's
Jews.

The division had ruled that
the Transit Authority may
not deny jobs to such Jews
even if accommodating their
inability to work during the
Jewish Sabbath conflicts with
the authority's collective bar-
gaining agreements, accord-
ing to Howard Rhine, COLPA
president.
Under the April 10 appeals
ruling, the TA must reinstate
the complainant, an Orthodox
Jewish bus driver who was
fired for refusing to work on
Saturdays. Rhine said that,
in addition, he must be given
all back pay and scheduled
for a tour of duty that does
not conflict with his religious
observances.
The TA also is required to
conform to a non-discrimi-
natory policy hereafter in
which "no person is to be
disqualified from obtaining
or holding employment be-
cause of his observance of
a Sabbath or other holy day
in accordance with the re-
quirements of his religion,"
Rhine said.
The case was filed under
the New York State Execu-
tive Law which generally re-
quires employers to make
accommodation to Sabbath
observers except for very
limited situations.

Israel-Made "Baraks
Fought Successfully
Against Soviet MIGs

"

NEW YORK (ZINS) —The
Israel Air Force has taken
delivery so far of 70 military
planes manufactured by Is-
rael's Aircraft Industries
Ltd., according to Aviation
Week.
The Israeli-made plane,
named "Barak" (Hebrew
for lightning), saw ac-
tion during the Yom Kippur
War and acquitted itself well
in aerial combat against
Soviet-made MIGs, some of
which were downed in dog-
fights. The "Barak" has a
six-ton bomb payload.

LONDON (JTA)—The Win-
